The scores came today.  My son's score is about 15 points higher than the current cutoff .

I'm disappointed my son didn't score a 593 out of 160 because of all of the test prep we did. 

Watch this blog in the coming months.   For every book review or tip that I've put out here, I have many, many more that I couldn't post because of the time I've been putting in to the possibility I'd have to do it all over again.  Or the fear therein. You'll see my blog summary change accordingly.

Going from average to exceptional for the day of the test has been quite a ride.


  1. Congrats ! You made it :) And thank you for sharing it all. We are still waiting for results.

  2. Congratulations
    I have been following your blog over one year. It has been so helpful to me. When I became so discouraged or urged to give up during prep season (we did almost one year), I read your blog to keep my hope and confident up. It was very hard to keep doing every day, but I did because you were doing. You blog provided me with great information I will never find by myself. I just wanted to say thank you. We received an offer from a gifted school. We wanted classical school….but it is okay. We are taking. I will continue to teach my daughter every day. It has become our routine in the morning before preschool.

  3. I'm glad to hear this. Discouragement has been our constant companion in this house. If I can do it with my 2 ruffians, anyone can do it. It just takes lots of work and some insanity.
